  1. Deeply touched, deeply grateful, with a heartfelt gratitude from all the Karatsanis family for this beatiful slide show, almost equally artistic as our grandfather's works! I'm sure that from up there, this "unsung artist", as you so well put it, is now smiling and feeling vindicated. Thank you, Tony!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Rena. I’m almost too flattered to see this amateurish slide show be compared to an artist’s work! If only it were true! In spite of your “little” exaggeration your wording makes your feelings clear. As to your grandfather, I hope he feels vindicated, so that I can finally say: Mission accomplished!
